Paule Vézelay’s Composition from 1933, a large pastel on canvas the artist produced in Paris in 1933, has been acquired by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh. The following year, Vézelay was invited to join the group Abstraction-Création and exhibited in several significant pioneering exhibitions of non-figurative art in France, Italy and Holland and this work demonstrates her move away from the Surrealist influence of her former partner, André Masson, towards pure non-objectivity.
